We’ve been really enjoying all the fun King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp and his wife, Toyah Wilcox have been having lately with their Sunday covers series and this week they tackled a tired and true hard rock classic, Alice Cooper’s “Poison.”
Wilcox told NME recently that she started the series to occupy Fripp, who was getting really bummed out about not being able to tour. “Here I am in this house with this 74-year-old husband who I really don’t want to live without,” she said. “He was withdrawing, so I thought: ‘I’m going to teach him to dance.’ And it became a challenge.”
“I do the lighting, the filming, the conceptual side and the persuading Robert to take part.” The duo have gone viral in the last month with their covers of “Enter Sandman” by Metallica, “Rebel Yell” by Billy Idol, “I Love Rock and Roll” by Joan Jett, “Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns N’ Roses, “Purple Haze” by Jimi Hendrix, and Tainted Love by Soft Cell.
